Summary: Gorgeous scent. Not too floral, more of a dry iris scent. It is soft but has great longevity. Be aware if you spray it on your clothing it will not go away until you wash it. But then again it smells so good you may not want to wash it out.
Summary: Infusion d´Iris Absolue is not a higher concentration of the eau de toilette, as i thought. Since i love orris fragances i like both of them, but i can imagine someone loving one and totally disliking other because the moods are, if not opposite, very different. The eau de toilette is cool, green and dewy, very spring-like. The absolue is more oriental, warm and enveloping. I would say they just share the iris. The way it starts is very much my cup of tea.
Summary: It has taken me two full days of wearing this, before I could write this review. I bought this fragrance blind, but had a brief sample sniff of the regular Infusion D'Iris from a friend. I was really looking forward to this fragrance, as wanted something floral, but a bit powdery for Spring. With the first few minutes, upon spraying, I was taken aback with an almost metallic, leathery note. Not very pleasant, but gratefully didn't linger too long.
Summary: This bizarre naming trend, adding misleading adjectives and nouns such as "essence" and "absolue" to the names of successfully launched perfumes, generates lots of dashed expectations, as there does not seem to be a lot of attention being given to the meanings of the words being attached by marketers casting about desperately to generate names as quickly as new perfumes are being launched.
